We were very lucky to stay in a brand new area of the hostel. Rooms and toilets were newly renovated which made our stay even better.

The staff were so helpful when my tour was cancelled and I had to find something else to do with my day at short notice! The wifi is great. Hair dryers were a nice touch. Overall great place to stay!


Great stay at YHA! In town for a couple of days to see sights-perfect short walk into town surrounded by gorgeous views of lake & mountains. Dorms & bathrooms were nice, clean & comfortable, kitchen not always but more due to the guests staying! Staff were mostly friendly & helpful with good knowledge of what was on etc & able to book/contact things for us. We're out most of the time so didn't use all the facilities but the TV room/social areas all looked good!! Would definitely stay again :)
